Hello, How can I get the address of a member function. I'm getting the following error: error C2440: 'type cast' : cannot convert from 'void (__thiscall Game::* )(void)' to 'Code::System::VOID_CB *' Where VOID_CB is typedef void(* VOID_CB)(); And where I want to use it here: m_pRenderWindow->SetClearCB(&Game::Clear); Thanks for any assistance, exorcist_bob

If you are after function pointers, what I like to do is just make something like this:

class X


void foo ();

static void _foo (void *arg)
{ ((*)arg)->foo (); }

You can't pass 'foo' as a member because c++ mangles the name, which leaves you with passing static functions or placing the callback outside the class.

Hope that gets you started,
